Gene : LEC2 A. thaliana

DB identifier  ? AT1G28300 Secondary Identifier  ? locus:2032170
Name  ? LEAFY COTYLEDON 2 Brief Description  AP2/B3-like transcriptional factor family protein
TAIR Computational Description  AP2/B3-like transcriptional factor family protein;(source:Araport11)
TAIR Curator Summary  Transcription factor that contains a B3 domain, a DNA-binding motif unique to plants and characteristic of several transcription factors. Plays critical roles both early and late during embryo development. LEC2 RNA accumulates primarily during seed development. LEC2 is required for the maintenance of suspensor morphology, specification of cotyledon identity, progression through the maturation phase, and suppression of premature germination. It establishes a cellular environment sufficient to initiate embryo development - ectopic, postembryonic expression of LEC2 in transgenic plants induces the formation of somatic embryos and other organ-like structures and often confers embryonic characteristics to seedlings and to reproductive and vegetative organs of mature plants.
